Duik missing items on the "Links and cont." menu

Post by Matilde_ » Sun Apr 26, 2020 1:42 pm

Hello! I am new to Duik and this may be a stupid question but here we go.

Opening the "Links and constraints" panel I need to click "zero" but there is no option under the voice "parent across comps", all the options below just don't exist.
I downloaded the April 2020 version of Duik so I guess its the latest version. Can you please help me? :(

I am also having this issue. I made sure that my User Interface was set to "Expert" and tried both "Deb & Debug mode" and "Normal", but don't see the Zero button anywhere.

This is not the expert panel.

Have you clicked on "apply changes" or restarted Duik?

As you noted, that wasn't the Expert panel. That's why I came to the forum, because my settings for the UI were set correctly.

I restarted After Effects, but it didn't fix it. Then, I tried a few different things (none of which made a difference), and then restarted my computer. Now it's showing up! To be clear, all my settings were correct within Duik. But for whatever reason, I didn't see the correct panel until I restarted my computer.

Not sure why I'd have to do all that, but just happy it works now!

Thanks.

Hum that's very strange....

Duik stores the settings in your documents folder, do you have some specific configuration, like having this folder synced on a cloud storage, or a network session, something like that?

I'm not aware of any weird settings, but I do leave my computer on for long periods of time and delay system restarts. I assume something else on my computer changed, updated, or was struggling and a restart was necessary. I've never had this issue in the past, for example when updating my Duik installation version. Since I have no recollection of other things going on since my last restart, I'm making the assumption that the issue was there.

If I find out otherwise when messing with settings again, I'll be sure to report it (hopefully with a reproducible example). Thanks again.
